Our trip to Iowa culminated in an even that called A Day Out with Thomas, with all the kids. Probably due to the fact that I have a much younger brother, I watched children's programming much longer than a lot of kids my age, and I've always had a soft spot for Thomas the Tank Engine and all his friends. It was really fun to not only see the little Thomas engine, but also take a short ride in a train pulled by him! The kids all loved it too, of course.
He even talks and looks around!
The very next day we were headed back to Tennessee. I am so thankful that we realized the kiddo was just about to the point of being too big for her car seat - we bought a new one while in Iowa, and it shortened the drive back to TN by several hours. Having a more comfortable kiddo was a huge relief for all of us!
One of the things that I always keep an eye open for on long car rides, is trucks hauling weird loads. What do I mean by that? Well, this truck for one:
Yes, that is a truck load of turkeys...
Or how about this load - ok, I know it's not a semi, but still:
Yes, that is a cannon! We were in Kentucky by then, so I can definitely say "Only in the South!"
We made it back to Nashville, and my friend plus kiddo to Knoxville, safe and sound. Tomorrow's blog post will cover all of the awesome finds I brought home. As always, you can keep up with me on my Facebook page, or shop on Etsy anytime. See you tomorrow!
